La batalla entre el bien y el mal parece haberla ganado definitivamente el infierno. Pero justo cuando los dirigentes del Cielo, deprimidos y angustiados, están a punto de tirar la toalla, reciben una petición: una madre les pide que intenten salvar el alma de su hijo, Many Chave ( Demián Bichir), un boxeador con un pasado más que turbulento. Los dirigentes del cielo se agarran desesperadamente a esta oportunidad y enviana la Tierra a uno de sus ángeles más capacitados, Lola Nevado (Victoria Abril). Lola, haciéndose pasar por la mujer del boxeador, intentará llevar el alma de Many a su terreno. Pero los servicios de información del infierno, los cuales están a cargo de Jack Devenport (Gael García Bernal), detectan a un agente de campo de gran experiencia, Carmen Ramos (Penélope Cruz). Carmen, provista de una identidad falsa que la acredita como prima hermana de Many, logra instalarse en case de éste.

Fresh out of prison, Git rescues a former best friend (now living with Git's girlfriend) from a beating at the hands of loan sharks. He's now in trouble with the mob boss, Tom French, who sends Git to Cork with another debtor, Bunny Kelly, to find a guy named Frank Grogan, and take him to a man with a friendly face at a shack across a bog. It's a tougher assignment than it seems: Git's a novice, Bunny's prone to rash acts, Frank doesn't want to be found (and once he's found, he has no money), and maybe Tom's planning to murder Frank, which puts Git in a moral dilemma.
